Hoops: Los Altos summer tournament starts tonight, right smack in the middle of Lakers-Celtics game 7 — what should i do :)

Would you believe me if I said I flipped a coin between covering the Los Altos summer league basketball games tonight or staying home to watch Lakers-Celtics in game 7? Give Conqs’ coach Jeff Lucas some credit, he’s taking one for the tournament team by playing at 7, and my good friend at Keppel, coach Hung Duong, who I know is a big Lakers fan, is playing Arroyo at 7 at Workman High. And those graduations tonight? I can only imagine the oohs and ahhs in tight-knit crowd of cell phones, that should be interesting. My goodness, hope the TIVOs are working, and if the bus doesn’t show up or breaks down for the games tonight, I understand, it’s only one of the biggest games in one of the biggest rivalries in NBA history.

  • FredJ

    KH, you love this blog don’t you:)

  • Funny Fred

    I wonder what the over/under on attendance will be tonight…those poor players

  • socalbasketball fan

    Fortunately I will tape the game and if the lakers win will watch the game. If they lose will hit the erase button asap. I have watched this series since the lakers came to LA and Boston is one team that scares me. Good thing the lakers are at home which means a lot. LV line has the lakers -7. Refs for tonights game will be the Crawfords Joe and Dan along with Scott Foster. At least we will not get Bennett “i have LA” Salvatore. To bad Steve Javie is injured as he is the best ref in the NBA. Boston will bring it tonight and the lakers need to come out of the gate fast and never slow down. Artest and Odom need to have decent games for the lakers to win. Bynum will be of little help since he cannot jump and rebound.

    Huh, Fred. That’s a no brainer. Go have a good time with some cold ones and watch the Lakers! Plenty of time later in the school year to torture yourself.

    Damn boy you got the Amat in your head blues pretty bad. You tend to relate every thread on here you don’t like to Amat . Give it a rest and besides this is mainly a high school related blog as it states inthe heading , prep sports.

  • Jeff Lucas


    We will have 2 TV’s on in the gym so everyone can watch the tournament games and the Laker game at the same time.

    Will you come now?

    How about a free open snack bar for you?

    Lakers Celtics game 7 oh yeahhhhhh! get a fist full of rings KOBEEEEE!

  • FredJ

    Tempting coach, real tempting

  • jcaz

    Geez, thats a tough one.

    When I was working, I often had the same conflict. Either go to work (and thus pay my bills) or skip out and have a good old fashioned time with my drinking buddies !

    For me however, the choice was pretty easy, if only because I enjoyed eating and if it wasnt for those facts, Im almost certain that I wouldnt have had too much of a problem in deciding what to do.

    Your lucky Fred, because ooooooh, if only my job allowed me to watch the game, and get paid for it at the same time !

    What a life you lead….

    Im just surprised that you didnt get any press passes to the game tonight, with seats next to Jack….

  • kh

    dame boy.
    if its a h.s. blog.
    then why we talking about the lakers/
    then say something we can all relate too,
    am waiting,
    bonita has a passing league today at our place,
    damien.c.o. r.c. glendora,lots of good strong teams come visit,see thats what we need infor.not kh bullshit/.

  • LA Alum

    Come on Luke! You’re better than that!


    If they are good strong teams what is Bonita doing there.


    Passing league going on at Bonita as we speak.

    Upland, Charter Oak, Glendora and Bonita.

  • fred fred fred

    luck el fakers ese

  • To sgv football

    Went ot se the action at bonita today. Charter Oak Upland Bonita and glendora. Four very good Quartebacks out there today. From what I saw today I would rank the QB’s 1- Upland, very accurate today 2- big kid with a very big arm. The Glendora kid did not impress me. He missed several open receivers and threw some picks. But overall this might be the four best QB’s in our area.

  • Than;s for the tip Ken

    This is why Passing Leagues are passing leagues.

    Before I start let me say thanks to Ken Huth for the tip. Too bad more info isn’t given regarding these events on a weekly basis from Fred. Also Ken sorry for not introducing myself when you came down on the track but you seem involved in your fishing story so maybe next time. I see we have mutual friends.

    In truth I was shocked to see Jeffries lack of size. He’s thin but cut for sure but thin. His arm is solid as are his mechanics. The throws are there but passing league really doesn’t do this kid justice especially with the routes they give him and the lack of quality receivers who are willing but not able as one pass after another found the ground…hey that’s why it’s a work in progress right?

    Seen Pendleton as well and he’s an interesting kid. He’s confident for sure and has great size but there again what’s with the cheap routes. His arm action is very fluid but with increased arm speed this kid could really do something at the D2 level. Nothing wrong with that. This kid makes throws but maybe his defense reading isn’t as strong, but then again Podley is a stud QB coach so what do I know. I’m sure he’ll be fine.

    Didn’t see Upland so no reason to guess.

    Seen CO and they are LLLLLOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAADDDDDEEEEEEDDDD!!! They had 6’5″ Thropay at one wide out and a tall, thin and lanky 6’5″ SH transfer on the other side…talk about a QB dream. If that was Santiago he was off, probably baseball but his footwork is extremely solid. I like what he does and EVERY QB should take notes. He gets out very very very quick and sets up well…moves his feet and then bam! the ball’s out. Liked what I saw for sure. Maybe it’s just me but CO looked like a Champion, dressed like a Champion and worked like Champions. They definitely have it going early. Kudos to Farrar.

    Well that’s it for the QBs, remember it’s only a start. Best of luck to everyone, remember these are just my observations your coaches know what theyre doing…at least these guys do. lol

    Thanks Coach Lucas.

  • Summer Tournament Info

    How’s CO doing in Summer League Basketball Games? What tournaments are they in, and when do they play next? Bonita has been killing so far this year with a squad that has been playing together for years. Does anyone know Bonita’s next scheduled Summer Basketball games?

    Coach Lucas thanks for the info. More tournament host should be so kind.

  • COChargerfan

    CO is playing over at the Glendora H.S. league and we’re o for 2. Going to play the Amat tourney but that’s all that is scheduled. Last summer we played 52 games…this year looks like around 12…with a very inexperienced team the Sierra league looks a little scary…

  • Admirable blog! Ill likely be referencing some of this data in my next speech. I would appreciate it when you visited my blog
